The Double Snap-N-Go
When I went out with the girls the other night, I scored a car load of baby items including (but not limited to) two infant car seats with 4 bases with the Snap-N-Go. As soon as Max saw the Snap-N-Go unloaded on Friday, he just knew he had to push it. Forget the twins, he had big plans for it and it has already made a few trips around the block.

The Pony Ride
At the park near the LA Zoo, there are many, many different attractions one of which is a $3 pony ride. There was a train ride in the same area and, of course, we had to ride that before and after the ponies. Max is pointing out the train here and telling all about his train ride.

After the ponies and a second train ride we headed to the Merry-Go-Round for a couple of spins. Max was begging for more, but mom had had enough.

Swimming In The "little" Pool
After lunch and "rest time" in which mommy actually dozed off and Max didn't come close, we headed outside. Max tried to talk me into getting in the big pool, but quickly made do with the little pool. I'm really fortunate that I have a hot water hook up outside so was able to fill the pool with warm water as it probably would have been too cold to play for long otherwise. Yes, he had to have every ball he owns in with him. Notice Poo watching him. He got the chair and Poo himself and set that up as I was turning off the water. Shortly after, Poo took a few dives, a slide or two, and swam a bit with Max because he "need my friends Mommy". Max was really impressed with how heavy Poo got. Max took a break from the pool to give Poo a ride in his car.

Another fun day. However, since the day started early around here with Max climbing in bed with me somewhere around 4 am (at least he fell back asleep for a few hours where I only dozed a bit), I'm glad it's done and he is zonked out giving me a bit of free time before bed myself. The only good thing about this early morning was that I found a little clock that my mom had given Max that apparently had an alarm to go off at 5:10 am. No wonder Max has been waking up in that early 5 am hour so much lately. I'm hoping that fixing that will allow both of us a bit more sleep in the mornings.
